Phase Motion Control S.p.A.

Who we are

Phase was born as a centre of expertise in the power electronics and energy control sector. It specializes in electronic and electromechanical components and solutions optimized for continuous improvement of performance in the field of automation.

The Company performs all stages of the product design cycle, from conception through validation with CAD and FEA tools, to component and subsystem design and specification, down to the definition of tools, jigs and production cycles.

The internal design work has led to the achievement of a number of international techniques and patents, ranging from complete mechanical systems, to production technologies, to magnetic structures with high energy product magnets, to control algorithms for PWM AC drives. -D.C.

From the outset, the business has evolved into two areas:

1. Conception, simulation, design, industrialization of motors and special actuators for motion control, optimized both for electronic control and for the mechanical system operated.
2. Innovative electronic power drives, in which original solutions and algorithms are adopted, in order to optimize the flow of energy and maximize system performance, minimizing EMC interference and harmonic content in the network.

Ethical Charter Of Phase Motion Control

1. The aim of the Company is to expand scientific knowledge and to progress technology through invention, design and efficient production of innovative devices in the field of cybernetics, motion control and energy conversion, in the belief that the advance of science is as much the driving force of humanity as it is the only means of offering the best future for all living beings.

2. The Company aims to make a profit, because profit guarantees growth, independence, and freedom of choice, all factors which contribute towards the pursuit of its aims. Any profit which requires non-ethical methods or which does not work towards the aims of the Company will not be pursued.

3. As innovation and discovery are exclusive to individual creativity, the Company considers its human capital at all levels to be the key asset of the firm and places it at the center of its interests.

Accordingly, the Company promotes and demands behavior, which is ethical, just and open, both internally and in its external relationships, in the belief that this is the only principle which is capable of guaranteeing growth of any social group in the long term.

The Company does not have a limited time frame.


Phase centralizes the development of special projects and series products in its Genoa headquarters "Blue Gate"


Of the staff is dedicated to R&D activities; Phase operates and continuously develops its own technologies and international patents in the Genoa office.

Marco Venturini, CEO of Phase Motion Control S.p.A.

Marco Venturini (IEEE M ‘78, S.M. ‘83) was born in Genoa, Italy. He received the Doctorate, with honors, in Nuclear Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 1977.

After a first period as Visiting Researcher to the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer sciences of the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) in 1976, he alternated professional activity in Italy with research at UCB until 1980.

In 1980, after his invention of the Matrix Converter was acquired by Texas Instruments he joined TI and later on Philips, as R&D Manager. In this position he designed the first series of brushless PM motors for general automation to be produced in Italy, apart from coordinating development of a number of advanced motion control projects.

In 1986 he founded Phase Motion Control S.p.A., which specialize in electronic power conversion, advanced motion control, specialty drives.

The projects encompass a wide array of applications, ranging from 10m direct drives for the VLT telescope to an 18m, 230,000 Nm rated Permanent Magnet Brushless Motor for GranTeCan Telescope. Additionally, they specialize in hybrid traction drives, large-scale wind, hydro, and tidal generators, as well as compact drives tailored for robotics and space exploration.

Power conversion equipment from Phase Motion Control operate a number of MW rated photovoltaic plants, one of them belonging to Phase Group.

From 1999 Phase Motion Control expanded their operation in China and now operate from 5 plants in China (recently acquired by the Chinese state), Italy, France and U.S.A. Currently Phase Motion Control is active in all field o electric mobility from powertrains to battery systems and fast recharging stations.

The field of interest of Dr. Venturini includes power electronic conversion, integrated electronic/electromechanical design, high response speed servo drives, very high speed and linear motors. He holds numerous patents in the power electronics and electromechanical design fields. Dr. Venturini is a Senior Member of IEEE, member of IAS, PES, UAI.
